According to Michael Farr’s Tintin: The Complete Companion, it is also the best-selling book in the Tintin series.

Tintin and the Captain hire the Sirius, a boat under Haddock’s command, to search for the said treasure. As the crew prepare for the search, their plans are discovered and publicized by the press,…
